Re: I left the Local Church After Reading the Real Church History

Good points all and where should I begin?


Oh, their music is contemporary - my words on this topic has often fallen on deaf ears. Just because a certain brother or sister didn't compose the...

Re: My Confused Adulthood

I think that's normal behavior. Problem is if one is an introvert, you'll always be like paint on a wall. Just part of the background. Elder or not; trying to gain approval is feeble. Personal...

Re: YouTube Channel Discusses the Local Church

I think it's a fair question to ask, if the recovery is the best why are so many children raised in the Local Churches end up in fellowship with non-LC Christian congregations?

Re: What a Lack of Increase Really Means for the LC

That situation would be even more difficult to meet anywhere else. One could grow up in the local churches, have their brother, sisters, nieces, and nephews in the nearby localities. It becomes an...

Re: Responsibility of Christians Responding to Aberrant/Abusive Groups

Just like the MSM networks, the LC does a lot of spinning the narrative.
If you speak to one's personal experiences, on the surface, "it's your experience". By no means is t meant to imply your...

Re: The Shunning

Many thoughts on shunning. It shows the system is more important than human relationships. Severed in an instant. I suppose the LC term for shunning is inoculation don't you think? Inoculation from...

Re: What a Lack of Increase Really Means for the LC

Ohio, yes I could see that too. Parents in the same locality since 1979. Now with all my siblings living considerable distance away, I'm thankful for the social interaction my mom has. In their...

Re: What a Lack of Increase Really Means for the LC

They say "there is nowhere else to go". There are plenty of places to go. The catch is having to start all over building church "social interactions". It's easy to go meet at a church where you know...

Re: Erroneous teaching of Lee concerning natural affection

How I perceived LC practice of natural affection similar to Luke 6:32. It's common to love those who love the ministry, yet as soon as any element of the ministry is questioned, one is turned on in...

Re: I left the Local Church After Reading the Real Church History

They've been conditioned for years of not being able to go anywhere else.
There's no trying. Being told for years, "we have all the riches". Results in pride. Being told "here in the local churches...

Re: POLL: How do you generally view the LC?

I've seen it happen. That's one of the criticisms of "everyone speaking". The leaders would rather have it go on than to correct the speaker.

Re: What a Lack of Increase Really Means for the LC

That's what makes LC's a ministry churches and not local churches. Those who share a vision for the ministry, it becomes a seamless transition. As to say "we love those who love the ministry".
